Hmm, thank you Khaled.  I took one look and knew in an instant
that it would not worked in an IniXeTeX environment :

	\@for\@ii:=#1\do{\xxt at showhyphens{\@ii}}%

Is there a simpler version that does not rely on all these
adjunct bells and whistles ?  And why does Jonathan's example
use the reformed orthopgraphy patterns when we are trying
to hyphenate words with eszet ?
